Saint Paul Travel Guide: 283 reviews and 556 photos


During August 2007 I made a roundtrip through the north of the USA, visiting amongst others Roosevelt, Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. Our start and end destination for this trip was the twin cities of Minneapolis/Saint Paul. And of course arriving and departing in this city, I had to take take a quick tour of the city as well. As time was limited I focused on only one part of the twin cities, the more older and smaller of the two, the city of Saint Paul.

    Great photos to show us the beauty you found in the cathedral thanks. Would be interesting to find out why Nagasaki is sister city - re their previous history with the USA. The food sounds interesting too.

    Great pics. I was surprised to see you were in St. Paul - one of my humble home away from homes (I was born in Minneapolis). If I find your rude waiter, I'll pour my beer on him!

    Nice impressions of my hometown. You should have gone to the JJ Hill mansion across the street from the Cathederal. Also the Basilica of St. Mary's in Minneapolis is equally as impressive. You know Minneapolis could not be outdone by it's sister city.

    Too bad you had such rotten weather in Saint Paul, but I'm glad you found some parts you liked just the same. This city's main claim to fame for me is that an unusual radio program is broadcast from there: Prairie Home Companion.

    A comprehensive, honest assessment of Saint Paul. Love the details about the Cathedral. Architecture is an obsession of mine so I enjoyed your comments about new and old. As always, I enjoy your descriptive tours.

    hi Simone! Extraordinary to see such classical architecture in the US. Key Lime Pie is a regular topic on the forums, haha!

    An excellent page. I too am fascinated by a combination of old and new architecture but it's a shame you didn't have better weather here - you really need blue sky to set it off :( I loved Peanuts, the Quadriga & the stunning cathedral interior shots
